Situated in the heart of the tourist district, the Hostel is clean, well-ventilated, secure and generally well run by the manager - a lady named Ana. She can be a bit abrasive and standoffish at times which can sometimes result in confusing scenarios. Example: she doesn't inform her guests upon arrival that tea, coffee and breakfast are all free, and... More

My friends & I came to Melaka without any prebooked accommodation. We were approached by a guy at the bus station who was offering rooms in a guesthouse. I am usually sceptical about people offering you things at bus terminals but his way was so gentle and not pushy that we decided to give it a go. After checking out... More

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in May 2014. We booked a private room with attached bathroom on the bottom floor. We really enjoyed this place! The common area was comfortable and great for meeting other travelers. The drinks were cheap and the staff were amazing! We met George at the bus station where he told us... More

Nice private rooms. Amazing free breakfast of sausages, beans, egg and toast! Sociable communal area, dvd player, cable TV. Staff helpful with travel advice. Not sure about rave reviews of Mallaca, not much to do, locals said the most authentic food was in the shopping mall . .

My girlfriend and I have stayed in Travellers Planet many times. Good double rooms, clean bathrooms, great staff, good location. At this price point, I have not been able to find anywhere better in Melaka. Highly recommended!

Overall this guesthouse has everything you need, clean rooms, friendly and well spoken english speaking staff, with a great communal area. Near to all the historic sites and 30 seconds to the night market. I have been traveling for 2 years, and this is a lovely place to stay.

They have a nice furnished community room with TV, DVD's, books, etc., cheap drinks, free WiFi covering the whole place. Talk to George if you stay at this place, he is the manager... More

I took the air-conditioned room with attached bathroom. The room is a bit small so its more suitable for backpackers or a very short stay only. Room and bed was comfortable.I manage to spot 1 mosquito around. The male person-in-charge was really friendly. DVDs and books are available for you to read in case you are bored in the night....
